The Andalucia region
The area enjoys wonderful hot summers, sunny warm springs and winters with chilly nights and many warm sunny days.
Rich in Iberian and Moorish culture - visits to Granada and the Alhambra and to Cordoba are a must. Lots of guide books, and other books of local interest at the house. Olive growing is the mainstay of the local economy.
The market towns of Loja and Archidona are within a fifteen minute drive. In a little over half an hour you could be in Antequera, a charming old town, commanding spectacular views of El Torcal National park, and across the surrounding plains. Close to Antequera is El Torcal National Park, an area of majestic and fascinating limestone columns and formations, with marked walking trails.
For those with a taste for ancient history, Antequera is home to the most important dolmenic complex in Europe. There is a golf course at the Antequera Golf Hotel.
A short drive to the west takes you to Fuente de Piedra, and its lake, with Spain’s only breeding colony of flamingos, as well as a multitude of other bird life.
Fuente Del Conde
The house is about 6 kilometres from the hilltop village of Iznajar . The town gets its name from the Arabic “Hisn” (castle) and “Ashar” (happy), referring to the Moorish castle which towers picturesquely above it.
Iznajar itself commands views over the surrounding countryside— rolling hills clad with olive groves as far as the eye can see, and the lake –32 kms long and 6 kms wide—almost always a breathtaking blue, as it reflects the clear sky, but spectacular whatever the weather!
The lake provides opportunities for swimming, fishing and sailing.
